Mixed Messages

   Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Instant Messaging, Texting, Sharing, Devotionals, Inspirational Stories,  Sermons, Testimonies, Songs, Videos, Prayer Requests.  There is so much emotional traffic spinning endlessly through cyberspace.  I find myself overwhelmed more often than I am inspired.   I miss the quiet days when my phone resided only in my house and callers were content to leave a message on my answering machine.   I could work for hours in my yard in peaceful reflection enjoying the beautiful day God provided.  Technology is a remarkable innovation, but it has created a new world hunger for information.  Have our prayers to God reached the same level of expectation? ...send-receive...send-receive...send-receive...

Is the Pen really mightier than the Sword?

    The sword is a metaphor for violence,
and violence occurs as the result of uncontrollable emotion.
   But just four simple words guided emotion into movement.
                      "I have a dream"
  The pen is mightier than the sword, indeed!

The All Mighty

  Today, the value of a dollar is not backed by Gold or Silver bank reserves, instead, it's worth is measured by our collective     belief in it.  Has our faith in the all mighty dollar convoluted our faith in the Almighty?
                                          "Trust in the Lord with all your heart,  
                                       And lean not on your
                                           own understanding;
                                       In all your ways
                                           acknowledge Him,
                                      And He shall direct
                                          your paths."  
                                                                        Proverbs  3 : 5-6

   Imagination is our friend and our enemy.  Do you listen when God speaks, or do you interpret His word in your favor.  Here's how to tell the difference; God reaches into your heart while      Satan can only whisper in your ear.  So feel God and wear headphones.

  The act of forgiveness won't stop the pain, it merely allows the healing to begin.

Older Not Wiser

  Pity the children who don't see Him.  For they grow old wandering anxiously through a forest of loneliness and self-doubt.  Some find the light to guide them out from the shade, while others take asylum in a house of mirrors distorting the most beautiful view with their own reflection.

Heart Attack

   Unrelenting disappointment leaves your heart sick and your self esteem buried under an ever ascending mountain of discouragement.  Only God can move mountains, without him we continue to wander aimlessly in the dark caverns of despair.

Rear View Mirror

     When God calls us, why is it some have the strength and courage to follow, while others do not.  Today, someone told me they knew being in church made them happy, but when they drove away, they were miserable.
     They found the strength to turn their car around, but I couldn't, I just kept driving.  Now when I look in the rear view mirror, I see 24 years of missed opportunity and misguided purpose.
                  God is love, Satan is a professional salesman.

Success or Failure?

  The only thing that separates Success from Failure is our level of expectation.  Jesus walked only one path.  He did not walk too slow, nor did he hurry.  He just kept walking.

Three Degrees

    The earth is just three degrees from becoming a planet too hot or too cold to sustain life.
    The survival of every living organism depends on its relationship to another living source.  Science stands as testament of the human need for relationship.

         Has the world gone insane and left me standing?
Insanity is defined as the act of doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
         From my earliest childhood to my choice of career, I've spent my life trying to please somebody.  In every case, it has resulted in my being yelled at, criticized or avoided.
         And yet, my desire for approval still persists.
                                  ...Clearly, I'm the one who's insane.
